With his acclaimed CD series “Beethoven’s world”, conductor Reinhard Goebel regularly proves that the era of Viennese classical music has much more to offer than the famous trio Haydn/Mozart/Beethoven. The fourth Album in this recording series features works by composers such as Jan Ladislav Dussek and Anton Eberl, who were equally acclaimed contemporaries of Beethoven. Together with the award-winning piano duo Yaara Tal & Andreas Groethuysen, Goebel has recorded concertos by these two composers for two pianos and orchestra. These concerts are framed by Beethoven’s congratulatory Minuet for Orchestra in E Flat Major and-as a world premiere recording-a series of variations on the well – known “Follia”theme by Joseph von Eybler. Reinhard Goebel conducts the hr Symphony Orchestra.
Jan Ladislaus Dussek and Anton Eberl celebrated great successes during Beethoven’s lifetime and gained recognition and Reputation throughout the continent. Böhme Dussek was admired throughout Europe as a Pianist. He also had many friends as a person and composer. As Joseph Haydn, who described Dussek as “the most righteous, the most moral, and the most excellent man in the art of music.” In 1806 he composed his Concerto in B Major Op. 63 (1806) for two pianos and orchestra. Already in 1803, however, Anton Eberl (1765-1807) wrote his Concerto in B Major op. 45 for two pianos and orchestra. In contrast to Dussek, who probably never visited Beethoven’s adopted home of Vienna, Eberl may have met his great colleague again and again. The “Gratulations-Menuett” with which the Album opened, was a gift from Beethoven to the Director of the Joseph townsfolk theatre, Karl Friedrich Hensler. The “Follia with all instruments” by Joseph von Eybler is the orchestral version of Arcangelo Corelli’s Violin Sonata op.5, No. 12 from 1700.
